— Quite like last year, WWE is keeping the draft very secretive, to the point that most all of the talent will find out if they’re changing brands as soon as the audience does during the live show. With the exception of the long-rumored Umaga brand switch, little has leaked out on the draft. Back in 2002, WWE did a live draft for television and a secondary draft with the results posted on the company website. A number of mid-level and lower-level wrestlers had to log on to the WWE site late at night after the draft to find out about their futures.
— SmackDown wrestler Kenny Dykstra reportedly has a lot of heat, which could partially explain his hiatus from television in recent months. The feeling on Dykstra is that everyone recognizes his talent, but “his attitude has killed him.” Dykstra went down with a knee injury in January that put him out of action for nearly three months. Dykstra has been good to go since the week before WrestleMania, but still has yet to be brought back to television.
